This is one book I really missed when I finishes it. The characters and the dog are so real I wanted to keep being part of their lives. This is a must read.

If you’re looking for a murder mystery that will “wow” you, then you must add Neil Plakcy’s In Dog We Trust to your reading list. There is nothing not to like about this excellent story. Mr. Plakcy creates his lead character, Steve Levitan, an ex-con previously imprisoned for computer hacking, as someone you find yourself pulling for throughout the entire book. And if a likeable parolee isn’t enough, then add to the mix a remarkable golden retriever named Rochester, who adopts Steve after his owner is murdered, and who sniffs out enough clues to keep Steve on track while he tries to solve the mystery. The characters are real and believable and the action never falters. But, perhaps, most endearing is the relationship between Steve and Rochester and how, through the love of a dog, Steve begins to turn his life around. This reviewer hopes In Dog We Trust is the first of many more to come in this highly-entertaining series.
